Aye, 2 or 3 thousand i'd guess, the car park opposite the ground was heaving with our coaches . It kicked off in the pub/club next to the ground pre match & the taffys came unstuck against Warby's

I went seem to remember about 50 bolton on an open end being surrounded by a load of gobshites all talking like pirates..and i think we drew 1-1 might be wrong like

I was at both. Think we had about 7,000 at Cardiff. The Boro game was called off due to snow on the Saturday... it was as rough as fuck that night, we probably had a couple of thousand iirc, Stan Cummins brace for them. 

I was at Cardiff but didn’t think any where near 7k??

It kicked off in the pub/club next to the ground pre match & the taffys came unstuck against Warby's types & there was a steady number of bricks flying to & fro during the game......there was a bit of trouble at Cardiff at the "league liner" game as well.

On a slightly different note, back in 1976-77 season losing to Wolves last but one game scuppered our chances. Last game was away at Bristol Rovers and we had to win 13-0 or summat to go up, so a dead rubber of a match. Did anyone off here go anyway?

Yes - went to that and was disappointed we didnt go all out attack that game - think it ended in a draw??

We had it 3 times, Bournemouth, Cardiff & Portsmouth.

It was packed out for Bournemouth but not many went on the other 2.  It was a nice idea but seemed to have been designed by non football fans who would civilise us rough types, but largely meant fans were paying extra for stuff we didn't want.......the"disco carriage" with fake grafitti was especially crap & soon got damaged.

Also, the "league review" which was in most programmes announced which games it was going to which could mean a reception committee. Pompey put quite a few of the windows in when we went there.

Are you sure you'd not just taken too many black mambas, yellow salamanders or blue nuns..?

Ha ha, it wasn't like that when we had it & i doubt they'd have used film of our trips to push the league liner. For Bournemouth when we filled it, there were people carrying their own bodyweight in cans onto the train at Trinity St,- i think those big party cans were popular at the time - which resulted in much drunkeness, throwing up, bad language & brawling........or film of at Portsmouth where we were having to dive under the tables to avoid the glass from the bricks coming through the windows . Happy days.

Party 7s?

I vaguely remember them at family erm...parties.

I think the little cO2 canisters for the tap cost more than the ale as more often than not the tap would be discarded and my old man would bring out his trusty flathead screwdriver and ball-peen hammer.

Perhaps the Pompey lot bricked you upon arrival out of jealousy?

Used to take two party 7s to away games. One for on way there, one for return. Usually by train, sometimes by coach and once or twice train there and coach back, safety in numbers and all that.

Iirc correctly there were only three types of Party 7 - bitter, lager and a 'German' lager...

They didn't make non-pub piss-ups an easy affair back then.

No wonder so many drank Advocaat and Midori and other crap.

Got a keg type thing (party 7) in old money from a little micro brewery in Carmel, it was as flat as an ironing board when i got it home.

Wouldn't mind in the afternoon when i was sampling a few it was top drawer.

I always fancy getting off for a pint or eleven at the Olde Fighting Cocks (hello sailor) pub in Arnside when passing on the chuff-chuff...

More than one person has said the landlord is one of the cocks though.

I vaguely remember when Sutty was at large my old man forbade my mam from going to work via THE ginnel, not just a ginnel, THE ginnel.

Which connects Lever Edge/Green Lane area to Townleys before any Plumb Lane 'jokes'.

I'm sure I remember some ripper graffiti in Bolton though I may have imagined that.

Sutty's antics and John Lennon being shot are amongst my earliest memories.

That was a very dodgy ginnel, is it still open to the public ?

It's part of the Bolton-Linnyshaw bike path now, so metalled and streetlit but still dicey imo...

All the hospital staff go for cigs at one end and kids burn wheely bins and drink vodka at the other.

Strangely any K2 escapees would always shun the ginnel, heading down for the bright lights of Greenland or Bradford roads instead.
